LAST EDITED ON Jul-02-12 AT 12:55 PM (MST)
I live in Logan, UT, and I am a graduate student at USU. Last year was my first year hunting in Northern Utah. My friend (we will call him "J") and I both had northern region rifle tags and OTC rifle bull elk tags. I also had a pretty good Wyoming deer tag.
The OTC elk tag was a blast and a lot of hard work. We did our homework and did a bunch of scouting. It payed off with this 5x5 bull the first day of the hunt.
The northern region deer tags were just "ok" as was expected. I shot a small buck that tasted delicious.
My wyoming deer tag went well. My tag was good for a whitetail or a muley. I wanted a big muley really bad, but we just weren't seeing anything worth notching that tag over. We saw some 3X4 bucks, but they were pretty small. I ended up taking this 11 pt whitetail and I am happy with him. It is the first whitetail I have shot.
